Weight Loss Tips for 2011
Tips for eating out
1. Water instead of sodas or juices .Just by doing this you
can lose 5-10 pounds monthly!
2. Start your meal with a soup or salad
Restaurant meals are traditionally too large for 1 person. Either split with someone or request that waiter prior to bringing
wrap half of it to go.
4. In Mexican restaurants
order warm corn tortillas instead of fried tortilla chips for appetizers
5. In italian restaurants
eat small portion of bread but do not dip in oil that they bring to the table.
or broiled versus fried.
7. Don't forgo dessert but eat 3 polite bites and thats it. Again spliting
dessert is a great idea for that sweet tooth.. :)
1.Its summertime. Eat seasonal vegetables and fruits. Consume items that contain vitamin C.
Why? Vitamin C helps you metabolize fats! Vitamin C helps create carnitine.
is a nutrient that helps the body turn fat into energy. It is produced by the body in the liver and kidneys and stored in
the skeletal muscles, ...
Red meat (particularly lamb) and dairy products are the primary sources of carnitine. It can also be found in fish,
poultry, tempeh, wheat, asparagus, avocados, and peanut butter
This is a major fat fighter!
2. Its 8pm and you are watching TV . You are feeling a little
hungry and you know bedtime is less than an hour away.
What do you eat?
drinking a 12-20 ounce glass of water. Nutritionist tell us that 90% of the time when we think we are hungry we are literally
dehydrated or thirsty.Try it! I did and it has worked for me...
3. If possible eat food in a blue
room because blue color is a natural appette suppressant.
People eat 33% (or one third) less food
in blue rooms because it makes the food less appealing.
Whereas warm colors like yellow and red
make us eat substantially more.
4. What foods can help me attain my weight loss goals?
In general antogens aid in weight loss;noni,licorice and mushrooms etc
Soups that have
liquid volume but are devoid of density are recommended as well.
Avoid dense foods
like mashed potatoes ,macaroni and cheese etc
Eat watermelon or fruits that have a high water
content.Grapefruit and other melons ,mmm.
Furthermore because of its rind construction watermelon
is less susceptible to pesticide contamination.
How much is enough?
Imagine you were preparing a healthy
sized plate for a 7 year old child.
Not too much that they would leave a wasteful
amount on their plate.
One small piece of chicken like a leg will be sufficient
,don't you agree.
And i don't care how you prepare it. You could almost get away
with dipping it in chocolate and you still could lose weight if you watch your portions.
Deprivation is bad moderation is soooooo good.
Go there have 1-2 original donuts and a coffee / or milk and leave
the rest of them there.
The idea of taking donuts,candy ,cake or ice cream home
to share is out of the question.
eat 90-100% of it.
You see the rest of the people in my family are slow
eaters.That means more than likely i will eat their share before they get around to it.
eat what you want in moderation but don't bring it to your home.
Question: Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired of your overweight condition?
I was several years ago and I went to Overeaters Anonymous Meetings.
Here is a website of our FREE meetings!
Want a simple, no-frills trick for cutting back on calories? Repeat yourself.
That is, repeat your meals.
Research shows that if you repeat meals -- for example, by eating the same healthy breakfast
or lunch every day -- you will consume less food overall.
Love the Monotony
all thanks to the magic of meal monotony. Basically, there's an appetite-suppressing effect that comes naturally from restricting
food choices. Call it "school cafeteria syndrome." And it really works. In a recent study, researchers fed volunteers
the same macaroni and cheese dish every day for 5 days. By the fifth day, volunteers ate much less mac and cheese. In fact,
on average they were consuming almost 20 percent fewer calories by day five
Eat slowly. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes for your brain to pick up satiety signals. So put your
fork down between bites and savor your meal. Use a smaller plate. Time and
again, researchers find that people given larger plates will eat more. Shrink the plate to shrink the meal. (Related:
